Hong Kong Art Archive

The Hong Kong Art Archive was founded with the aim of promoting awareness and study of Hong Kong artistic achievement on a worldwide basis. It hopes to provide students, academic researchers in the fields of art history, visual culture etc., curators and others interested in modern and contemporary Chinese art with electronic and physical resources, particularly with respect to the work of living Hong Kong artists.

The HKAA's electronic resources are:

  1. A visual archive of images of works by Hong Kong artists, together with associated documentation. An opening page enables one to scroll down an alphabetical listing of the artists currently included in the archive, and view a small-scale sample image for each artist.

  2. A guide to the literature on Hong Kong art. This online searchable bibliography is intended to provide the kind of resources for students and researchers that is readily available in the case of English language material concerning Western art, but which has not so far been available for students of its Hong Kong counterpart.

  3. A guide to art exhibitions that have taken place in Hong Kong. This online searchable resource aims to provide a chronology of art events in Hong Kong, whether they feature Hong Kong artists or those from overseas.

  4. A collection of online articles, interviews, artists' statements and other textual resources in either English or Chinese, plus a collection of essays on Hong Kong art written by students of the Fine Arts Department, HKU.

The physical resources of the archive, which currently consist of a reference collection of books, exhibition catalogues and other materials on Hong Kong art, is located in the Resources Room of the Department of Fine Arts, The University of Hong Kong.
